    I like beer, but I'm not desperate for it. I'll just get it the good old-fashioned way.

    Just an FYI...the people getting the vaccine 1st from these different companies are all test subjects....I highly recommend not getting it just yet...to each his own...and that science statement is BS....thats why some vaccines are being pulled now..because it's killing people also...and then they will modify it....this will happen several times until it's actually good...good luck

    I never got a flu shot nor will I never get a covid shot. I’m fine with the 99.7% survival rate without a shot. Odds are better of dieing from the shot than getting the China virus.

    I know this is totally off-topic but when the wife and I were vacationing in Colorado in 1978 we stopped at a place that had a sign that said “shot and a beer - $1” those were the good old days my friends

    Shot #2 received on Tuesday, I'm not sick, dead nor do I have arm growing out of my head. I feel that it's better to be safe than sorry. -Mezz

    This is my exact opinion as well. My new statement towards the vaccine is: congratulations, you have just became their test subject!

    Really?? Care to quote where you got the statistic that you have a better chance of dying from the vaccine that you do from Covid-19?

    I don't want to get into the argument of whether or not people should get the shot. That's a personal decision. But lets let real science or statistics help people make that decision. Mis-information from both sides is a bigger challenge right now than anything else.
    I'm going to copy and paste in here a post from a very good friend of mine who is a DR and has been dealing with this since the beginning. Not only is she a Dr but her and her family are snowmobilers and part of my core group of riding partners. So you can rip me for putting this up here but I don't want to see anybody ripping on what she says as she's been in the thick of this and I trust her opinion on this a lot more that I trust a group of snowmobilers regarding medical issues. 

     Good question of the week:
    Why should I vaccinate for Covid-19?
     
    I preface this post by admitting that I’m tired. I’m tired of Covid. I’ve spent the last year helping my patients fight this disease. Now I’m spending my days helping them fight the known and unknown complications of Covid-19. We are learning as we go, and it is exhausting and frightening.
     
    You know what makes me more tired than treating Covid-19 and it’s complications? A year of battling misinformation. Misinformation about the virus itself. About masks. Treatments. And, now, vaccines.
     
    But I’m going to do it anyway. I get back up every day, find a bit of light inside and keep going.
     
    For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Family Physician who has cared for this community for 20 years. My children go to school in our public schools. Most of my very large extended family lives within a hour’s drive of River Falls. I’m pot-committed, so to speak.
     
    It is my love of the people of this community that compels me to respond to vaccine misinformation being perpetuated by a local chiropractor. I will start by saying that I have tremendous respect for our local chiropractic community. I refer patients to our excellent local care providers, and they send patients back to me. It is collegial. However, I take offense to the insinuation that physicans do not care about natural wellness and healing. It frustrates me that people are being presented with false choice: you either seek wellness or traditional medical care, including vaccines. Why can’t I have both? Why can’t I both be vaccinated AND eat well, practice mindfulness and exercise? Why can’t I have my yoga practice and my vaccine, too? To imply that physicians are not promoting wellness is ridiculous.
     
    Let’s break down some of the truths, half-truths and outright lies that are being spread.
     
    1. There are no long-term studies on the safety of the vaccines. Yep, that one is true. This is why the vaccines have Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA.
     
    2. Vaccination does not weaken your immune system or drive variant strain development. Yes, our immune system is a complex and wonderful thing, capable of responding to both current and emerging viruses. Variants are driven by ongoing natural infections. If the virus is driven out of its natural host, it cannot mutate. To imply that the flu vaccine drives mutations is to not understand how that particular virus works. Flu has 3 natural hosts: humans, poultry and swine. The influenza virus shifts each years by recombining its genetic material when its natural hosts live in close contact. This has been happening for millennia, long before vaccines were available to fight flu and other viruses. The coronavirus is also not a newcomer. To imply that we are driving genetic mutation with vaccination is hubris. We are not yet that powerful.
     
    3. I’m sick and tired of the implication that doctors are trying to poison our patients with stuff in vaccines. There is no mercury in vaccines. Hasn’t been for years. I probably got more mercury in the excellent poke tuna that I had last night at Junior’s than I have had in any recent vaccines. Want to know the ingredients in the mRNA vaccines? Here you go: mRNA, lipids, (yes, the lipids have long scientific names, but they are only designed to help the mRNA slip into the cells), salts and sugar. That’s it. No formaldehyde, aluminum or other scary things. Chemicals like this do have a place in our homes. They make our fabrics stain resistant and our kids’ pajamas flame resistant. They are not, however, in our vaccines.
     
    4. Vaccines do prevent Covid-19. They keep us from getting it and spreading it. You can see study after study supporting this, but I would encourage you to look closer to home. I signed more death certificates from November to the end of January than at any point in my career. The physical and emotional toll on families has been staggering. I have not seen a case of Covid in my nursing home or assisted living population since we started vaccination. I have not signed one Covid death certificate since then. We are winning, and it is because of the vaccines.
     
    5. The Covid-19 vaccines do not cause sterility. Ugh. I’m so tired of this particular assertion. I’ve been doing this long enough to remember when the chicken pox vaccine came out. You know what was said then? Yep. Same thing. Same with the HPV vaccine. The least the vaccine nay-sayers could do would be to come up with more creative ways to scare people rather than recirculating the same nonsense. Tell people that vaccines cause Peyronie’s disease or something. Go ahead and Google it.  
     
    My husband prompted me to write this post. He reminded me that in a vacuum, people will listen to the loudest voice. He reminded me to use my voice, because I am the front lines and deserve to be heard. In an ideal world, good food, exercise, sunshine and a healthy immune system would be all we need to survive. Tell that to the people who have lost loved ones to vaccine-preventable diseases.
     
    And now I’m going to break my own kindness rule because I want you to think about where you get your information. Think about where you go when faced with a life-threatening illness. Where you will take your child when she is on her 7th day of fever. When your teenager has such a severe headache and sore throat that he can’t lift his head. If your answer is that you will take them to a chiropractor, then by all means ignore everything I’ve written. If you want your physician to care for you, we are here. Promoting wellness AND treating disease.  
     
    If you choose not to be vaccinated, that's ok. However, I would ask that you do so based on sound information. The medical community will continue to care for you regardless of what you choose. It's what we do.
    Thank you, and be well.
